Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Section 15061 (b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
This project is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. It can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that this project may have a significant effect on the environment; therefore, the activity is not subject to CEQA. [Reference: State CEQA Guidelines sec. 15061(b)(3), General Rule Exemption]. This project is to construct a single-family dwelling and associated residential accessory structures. The grading activities are located within sparsely vegetated areas of the parcel and will result in minimum vegetation removal. Six oak trees are to be removed to complete this project and will be replanted at a two-to-one ratio for a total of 14 oak trees. Additionally, the previous conditions of approval for an approved grading permit required 2 oak trees to be planted and maintained as a result of the previous grading activities. Since those trees did not successfully mature, these two trees will also be replanted at this time. The total number of oak trees to be replaced on site will be 16. No known special status plant or wildlife species or resources are known to have habitats within the area. The project does not impact any scenic resources for any officially designated scenic highways. The project does not involve or cause a substantial adverse change in the significance of a historical resource. It can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that this project may have a significant effect on the environment.
